Introduction: Quick and Dirty Easel for Kids

About: Dad, maker, dreamer, hacker, painter.

Here is a quick way to have an art easel set up for two kids outside. It only takes a few minutes to put up and take down and uses stuff that you have lying around.

All you'll need is a ladder, two old cardboard boxes, and some tape.

Open the ladder, and then tape a cardboard box to each side of the ladder. Add Children and paint and have some fun!!

Don't forget to put on strong sunblock.

Cleanup is a snap.

Share and enjoy!

    Shhh...I know, but they are far too confident already. lol. Thanks!

    That is great! Painting is always fun, and this looks like a great way for kids to have fun painting without making a huge mess in the house :)

    Also doesn't add to the 'kid clutter' which is everywhere. Who needs one more plastic item to trip over when not in use?
